Voodoo dolls are inspired by the powerful magickal beings known as the djab.
Although the word “djab” is derived from the French word “diable” (devil),
djabs are personal spirits that belong to a specific person and not akin to the
devil in the Christian sense of the word. Often the relationship between the

frequently invoked to get rid of enemies, take action against an enemy or
business competitor, increase one's wealth, or to create other material

slaves to fight along side them in battle. Consequently, the djabs awarded the
Haitians protection against bullets, and aided in the Haitian’s victory over
their French enslavers by using biological warfare in the form of yellow fever,
ultimately wiping out most of General LeClerc's military force.
